This is Jodi James' anticipated LP release. A Louisiana singer/songwriter with soul, grit and assured tenderness, who holds nothing back.
"Things I Leave Behind" is a soulful wade through the realism and lonesomeness of unmet desires, combined with the heart-worn beauty and resolve of self-worth. James and her band deliver elements of folk, country, rock, and roots music.
